At a very early age, I was inspired by the arts and have been obsessed with making things with my hands ever since. I have always loved to paint, draw, and craft. I grew up in New York City and couldn't help but become fascinated with fashion and beauty as well. I started to play around with my own hair and makeup and it became an important part of my personal style and how I choose to express myself to the world. After years of career hunting and soul searching, I continued to be passionate about hair and makeup. I would style my friends and their friends and more friends of friends for events and weddings. As I got busier and busier it finally dawned on me that this is what I was meant to do. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Arts, then went on to graduate from the New York International Beauty School and became a New York State licensed cosmetologist.

I have worked with a wide range of clients and always aim to achieve their most glamorous side while maintaining an elegant look. It is a tremendous honor to play a role in one of the most important days of a woman’s life and the joy I feel making each bride feel their most beautiful and happy at the start of their special day is immeasurable. I am thankful for every bride who has let me into their lives, allowing me to continue this amazing adventure and career that found me. Read less

I cannot recommend Sissi highly enough. She did my hair and makeup for my wedding as well as a trial beforehand. During both the trial and my wedding day, she arrived punctually, was calm and professional, and did the best job I could've imagined! It was so easy to communicate with her throughout the process, and her rates are very reasonable. She is an amazing hair and makeup artist.

Sissi was a great part of my day, she helped put me at ease with her relaxed attitude on the morning of the ceremony... and even helped me into my dress at the last minute. I felt very special and beautiful, thanks to Sissi!

Sissi is the best! She made me look and feel more beautiful on my wedding day than I have ever felt in my life (just how every bride wants to feel!). From start to finish, working with Sissi was such an easy and fun experience. Sissi came to my home for a trial. First impression: she was exactly on time, and had brought detailed notes on everything from getting to my place to my wedding date, location, and bridal party size. I was so impressed by how organized she was--and being pretty type A myself, I felt immediately that she would be great to work with. At the trial she worked carefully with me to figure out the look I wanted. She offered great suggestions but also took into account my requests.

On the wedding day, she arrived early (she came from NY to Princeton, NJ) and got started right away. Again she was super prepared with notes so I didn't have to remind her anything, she just got to work. She worked carefully but also made sure I was done on time for my pictures. I was so happy with my final look, and it held up all night without any touch ups. Though I normally don't wear a lot of makeup, her technique was great, the makeup felt comfortable, and I looked very much myself (just enhanced :) ) She does a fantastic job!

I also appreciated how calm and soothing Sissi's presence was. She's very sweet and makes you feel at ease. The last thing you need to feel on your wedding day is stressed--so working with her was really a stress-free experience.

One note is that Sissi works by herself, so if you have a large bridal party, it is suggested that you hire additional stylists. I loved Sissi's work so much I knew I wanted to have her as my stylist, so it was a little bit of extra work to find additional help, but very much worth the extra step.

Her prices are very competitive with most (even lower than some) NYC-based artists, so it's such a great value to work with her. Look no further for all your wedding hair and makeup needs!

Sissi was amazing - and so reasonably priced compared to many other hair/makeup stylists I researched. She was punctual and friendly, very calming and easy to be around - exactly what you want the hours before your wedding! She really listened to me and took my requests into consideration, and I was completely stunned with the results. My hair and makeup lasted from my morning ceremony (9:30am) all the way through the end of my reception (11pm). I even slept with my hair still styled and wore it the next day for family brunches and dinners. It looked great and really held up!

Sissi is the best of the best! I found her on Wedding Wire and really loved her style - very beautiful yet natural hair and makeup. I sent her a bunch of Pinterest pictures of hair and makeup I liked, and she was able to recreate the styles I wanted to the tee. Throughout the whole process she was always organized and prompt with email communication which I really appreciate. We scheduled a trial at my apartment and the style came out looking just as beautiful on the big day. Of course wedding day can be stressful but throughout it all Sissi was professional, friendly, and very laid back.

My mom joked that there wasn't a need to get my hair and makeup professionally done since it would be coming apart by the end of the night, but I'm proud to say that through profuse amounts of tears and a rockin' dance floor, my hair AND makeup stayed intact! I opted for airbrush makeup and I think it really made a difference, the coverage was great but didn't look overdone. I loved working with Sissi and highly recommend her!

After reading all the yelp and wedding wire reviews, I knew I had to have Sissi as my hair and makeup artist. I had a trial done in November to try out the hairstyle and makeup. She was so professional and prompt about everything. And she is also very pleasant to be around.

Not only did she replicate the hair and makeup eight months later in June, but she also helped lace up my wedding dress (in like 5 minutes). I didn't have anyone at the time to help me lace up the back and time was churning. No one, not even the seamstress laced it up that quickly before. She truly went above and beyond to make me beautiful on my wedding day. Not to mention, the makeup and hair lasted all night. I would definitely recommend her.

I found Sissi on Wedding Wire and really loved the different styles on her website. Sissi was prompt and professional in all of our communications and was also very patient with all of my questions and updates. I scheduled a trial and Sissi walked me through each step - from eye makeup and lashes to the different options I had for my hair. I had a combination of styles I wanted to try and Sissi was able to create the exact styles I selected for my hair. It was great to get an idea and some direction for the look I was going for. I contacted Sissi a few times after the trial to update the style and colors for the makeup and she made all of the notes. On my wedding day, she was ready to go with all of the information from our conversations and trial results. She created the exact look I wanted. I couldn't have been more thrilled with the way my hair and makeup looked. On top of that, she also did my two sister's hair and makeup and my mom's hair. They all looked gorgeous. Sissi really knows how makeup should look on different faces. We started the makeup at 8:30am with the last hair style finishing at 2:15. Sissi was efficient and diligent and worked straight through and got us in our limo on time. I really enjoyed working with Sissi - from the first communication all the way to looking at my wedding photos and loving how we all look - and I would highly recommend her for any hair and makeup you need.

Sissi Chan was an absolute pleasure and professional to work with - I couldn't recommend her more highly!!

I have never written a Yelp review but I think everyone should have a chance to discover and work with Sissi. I had been researching hair and makeup artists for my wedding day and it seemed as though everyone's rates were exorbitant. Sissi's website gave a great first impression of her capacities and experience and provided an overview of her most reasonable prices. We easily arranged for a hair and makeup trial, she traveled to my home and in what seemed like no time she had transformed me into exactly what I'd wanted to look like on my wedding day. Working with Sissi, she was always polite, gave great advice when I needed it, and was extremely responsive over email and in person. I was also very impressed by how organized and accommodating she was -- Sissi was able to fit in two of my cousins and a close friend who made last minute requests for updos and eyelash extensions, and they couldn't have been happier!

My hair and makeup looked perfect through the entire night and my mother, sister's did as well. Sissi is amazing to work with and was one of the best decisions I made regarding wedding preparations. If I could give Sissi 6 stars or more, I would!

Sissi is amazing. She did my hair and makeup for my wedding and hair for my bridesmaids. She was quick to respond to email, polite and could carry on a conversation. She showed up on time (both for my trial and day of), kept to the schedule and did beautiful work. My hair and makeup held up the entire night, the longest I've had any professional services last and my pictures look fabulous.

Strongly recommend

I could have not have been happier working with Sissi. She did a fantastic job on my make-up and hair (which held up throughout the night with no problems whatsoever). She also did hair and make up for my sister and mother and they both looked great and their hair stayed up and the curls stayed intact! Sissi was very response throughout the planning process and on the day of the wedding she was organized, prompt and a wonderfully calming presence. I also love that she does hair and make-up. I highly recommend her services.
